  1. The GM 1000 would find those pieces blind folded. Absolutely great for bedrock hunting.

  3. Well, met up with Dave and James to do some exploring. Did some detecting but we all came up with a skunk. There was a couple of mines in the area and we found some neat old junk to bring home There was a snake skin in the wall of one mine and for the life of me I cannot figure out how those pack rats can move cholla cactus to cover the floor 6 inches deep. I just look at cholla and get stuck by it???? Tom

  4. What a beautiful day to hike a few miles in gold country The pre-dawn temps felt like they were in the 30’s and somehow that good crispy chill always makes your coffee taste better. I recently replaced the handle on my Apex pick and am very glad to have it done as the GPZ really hits some deep targets. Crazy how the Z can find both small and large nuggets at depth for the size. I don’t necessarily advocate for buying the latest and greatest technology but learning the Z (zvt) is certainly proving to be a lot of fun after many years of using vlf and pi detectors. There is the expected tr

  6. So it's been since 2011 since I've posted anything and the detector bug has bitten me again. I am really interested in the GM and I had a few questions. 1st how does it do on bedrock?That's primarily where I'd use it. 2nd I'm going to post a picture of some gold I found sniping. I really want to use a metal detector at this location. There's definitely gold there. Do you think this gold is big enough for the GM to see? And 3rd I have access to a old hydraulic mine do you think it would do ok there? My last detector was a mxt and I never did find gold with it. I'm located in Oregon.

  7. A FAIRY TALE Once upon a time a Prince asked a beautiful Princess, "Will you marry me?" The Princess immediately said, "No!" And the Prince lived happily ever after, and rode motorcycles and dated thin, long-legged, full-breasted women, and hunted and fished and raced cars, and went to titty bars and dated ladies half his age and drank whiskey, beer, and Captain Morgan, and never heard bitching and never paid child support or alimony, and dated cheerleaders and kept his house and guns, and ate spam and potato chips and beans, and b

  9. YUP!!! They will sound like boomers on the GM1000 and whispers on the GB2. Don't pay attention to that bar on top. Gold sounds off like iron here in AZ while sitting on bedrock. Could be different in other areas. Great investment that will pay off for you!! Good hunting!!! Mike

  12. Despite forecasts of bad weather , boulder dash and I squeezed in a hunt last weekend. No ferrite rings, funky harness systems, GPS`s, Spot messenger`s, pin pointer`s, or guns involved. Just a traditional hunt, with interchangeable coils, and light weight old technology. High benches with cemented gravels have gold.....Boulder dash proves that here A nice 2 + grammer shown here stuck in those ancient rocks... It was a chilly weekend with a brief clear nightscape..... The goodies ! Over 22 grams of fine gold nuggets were found .... Enjoy !

  14. Jesse - I did not find this gold with a detector but it still sounds off when in contact with the 5" coil. It sees smaaaall gold if you run it right.

  15. Welcome to the forum, I'm moving your topic to the meteorite forum so it will get more views from those who can possibly give you some answers.

  16. I would say it a breccia, which is shattered rock/mineral cemented back together with fine grain matrix of simliar or totally different material.

  17. Very nice picture to have, is she out there looking alongside Dad, would be great to share that time. I try to get my daughter out in the fields (relic's) looking but, but at 33 she'll gladly look and study over my finds with the same enthusiasm as me after the fact when she stops by.

  18. Here is another great photo I came across, I think. I was sitting in my lawn chair and saw this male collared lizard pop up on the Rock and as I was getting my camera the female popped up. Wish I had a better camera. AzNuggetBob

  20. I got out to "no" gold basin looking for some gold but found some nice meteorites instead. A few of these fit together. All found on two different hill sides only two were surface finds the rest were pretty deep. All found with my 7k. Total just over 600 grams. The biggest is 275 grams and with it's fitting pieces is 390.

  21. Howdy folks, its been a few months since I’ve been able to get and hunt and post anything. This past weekend, I was able to meetup with a few friends to hit up the Mojave Mountains area and its recent classification. Not having much info to go on, it was pretty much up in the air. Saturday was great weather, and couldn’t have been nicer. We all went our similar but separate ways and most of the day was picking up WWII trash. Lots of .30 and .50 cals, wire, links, and the rest. But that all changed when I came upon and nice up-right, open piece. Just sitting there waiting to picked u

  22. It has been a while since I found any good rings but my last two trips have been better. One trip I got 3 rings and today I got a 22k/3.9 g ring for a change. It is my first gold of 2018! The silver ring is 7g and the other two are titanium and I think a very thin stainless. Mitchel

  24. I went out last night nugget hunting and got a .08g nugget with the Zed 19. After it was daylight I went to the dry lake and looked for meteorites. I've only found one on this lake and it was about 3g. This one was sitting up nice and pretty and I could see it at a considerable distance. It is 13g, all fusion and has a wonderful patina on the entire piece. I'll have to compare it with the other finds on the lake which have been many.
